Artist Statement

Lisa Houck

Boston artist, Lisa Houck's work is best described in the following article from the Boston Globe by Christine Temin: "Lisa Houck's eye-popping watercolors and oils are flat and densely patterned, with the various sections appearing pieced together, like crazy quilts. Hers is a crowded, cacophonous landscape inhabited by flowers, fish, trees, numbers, raindrops, symbols, and dots like those in aboriginal paintings, all competing for your attention." Houck's landscapes are more about pattern and color than land. Most important to her work is her powerful sense of design.

Houck is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design (BFA) and Tufts University/School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, (MA/MFA). Her work has been extensively exhibited in galleries and museums and she is widely published. Houck's pieces can be found in numerous collections including The Boston Company, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Fidelity Investments, the Fogg Art Museum, Coopers and Lybrand, and Massachusetts General Hospital to mention a few.
